Social event: SIAS Welcomes new members and old

Every year in October SIAS holds welcome drinks for new members and old members. However this year with the “Rule of 6” it wont be feasible for us all to come together!

So the SIAS welcome event will be held online. There will be a short presentation as to what SIAS does followed by a SIAS bingo based on 25 facts about SIAS. To keep the evening short, we will finish with a short 30 minute interactive magic show.

Please can current members sign up with one new member or a potential member to help show them what SIAS does - to encourage you to join there will be prizes!
